protein array

^ http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/MI_0089


The protein array technology allows the screening of biochemical activities or binding abilities of hundreds or thousands of protein samples in parallel. After synthesis and purification by high-throughput methodologies, the proteins are printed onto the chip by using an instrument (micro-arrayer) that is capable of spotting liquid samples in a reproducible manner onto a planar support. The ordered protein array can then be probed with labelled molecules to identify proteins that bind to the bait. [ PMID:12067604 PMID:10976071 ]
